City of Quinault is, in my opinion, the perfect weekend getaway. I first
visited Quinault in February 2001, but returned
in 2004 to spend a weekend at
the lodge there. Quinault is at the end of the Quinault Rain Forest,
which provides several different trails to hike on.
lodge itself is quite old and supposedly haunted. We didn't see any
ghosts. The lodge sits right on the edge of
Lake Quinault, with most of
the rooms possessing unobstructed views of it.
really felt a connection to nature and the true beauty of Washington State
while I was in Quinault. And one final point, Quinault is only about 30
minutes to the north of Ocean Shores. We drove there one morning for
breakfast and a round
of mini-golf. For
more information visit:
Harbor County is made up of the Chehalis River Valley, tidewater plains
and bays, and the forested uplands of the Coast Range on the Pacific Coast
of southwestern Washington. This county was original incorporated as
Chehalis County around 1858, then was renamed in 1915 by a legislative act
to Grays Harbor County after Captain Robert Gray.
